three guys named, ken lay, the head of enron. but here's the problem. obama administration didn't take down ken lay. he was taken down during the bush administration. kozlowski was prosecuted during the bush administration. bernie madoff, his son turned him in under the bush administration. where are the heads of j.p. morgan and country wide, all these companies that caused that epic collapse, also under the bush administration? did they get prosecuted under the obama administration? the definitive answer is hell no. they didn't get prosecuted so much, president obama couldn't find a single one prosecuted under his watch that he could put in that ad. so what's sad is unfortunately president obama isn't that much better than mitt romney on this issue. i wish he was tough on wall street so that that ad could make a ton of sense. look is mitt romney going to let off wall street even more? of course! of course! he's going to get rid of dodd frank. it's incredibly weak and mitt romney instead of wanting weak regulations wants none. is it right to compare sesame street and wall street? absol

an opening. as written in the wall street journal. the biggest calamity for obama of course, the administration handling of the tragic attack after two weeks of tiptoe around a definitive answer, they released a statement saying that the attacks in libya from deliberate organized attacks carried out by extremists. >> intelligence community put out a lengthy document that explained the timeline here. i think in the days afterwards it was not clear that this was a terrorist attack as their investigation was conducted and they got more information. that's a determination that they made. >> eliot: some romney advisers think this is an area of weakness of obama upon which they should pounce. others say they should stay with the economy. joining me now former assistant to president clinton for national security affairs. thank you for joining us. >> a pleasure, eliot. >> eliot: let's start with the important question. what do we know about al-qaeda's attacks in the consulate in ben gassy. >> this was a well planned attack. somebody had been casing the consulate in benghazi for some

he did suggest that israel has the ability to make the decision itself. i by the obama administration has been more his important to give israel any such green light. i think both have said an nuclear weapon is unacceptable but where you may see a little bit more difference is romney may be inclined earlier to bless a israel decision to use force or participate in it in himself. i think it's an important nuance. >> jennifer: very quickly what further sanctions could help to bring iran to the negotiating table? i think the sanctions were already pretty tough. >> i think they are. i think it's a punishment strategy more than a persuasion strategy. you know at some point they agree to a compromise position but basically we're hurting them a lot already. if their oil exports are down by half, the currency has declined by half anyway but the regime may not care, and that's the real dilemma. >> jennifer: sure. i really appreciate you coming inside "the war room" to explain the unrest. all right. political junksies coming up we'll tell you why the preside

attacking the president as weak on national security and that they're going to allege that the obama administration had positive intelligence that there was going to be a terrorist attack in libya. is that attack going to work? >> not at all. in fact, what's interesting is in the last week, when the republicans have been doing trial balloons with this attack, the president's advantage on foreign policy has actually increased. in the battleground poll, it increased by a third. over this period in time. the president's credentials on foreign policy are well-established and what's different about the president and mitt romney is the president has a record and he doesn't play politics with foreign policy. and i think that provides a great deal of security to voters. voters also rank the president as ahead of mitt romney on strong leadership. and that strong leadership is highly correlated with the decisive actions he's taken in foreign policy whether it is getting us out of iraq or finding osama bin laden or waiting to

're being buried by the obama administration's economic failures. >> we know that actually the obama administration is responsible for taking us from 800,000 jobs being lost to gaining over 100,000 jobs on average for the last few months. we had 5.1 million jobs created over the course of the last 30 months. the middle class most people believe, the middle class is doing better today than at the end of the bush administration, but let's hear what joe biden actually does think. >> gentlemen it's never never never been a good bet to bet against the american people. never. >> woo-hoo! that's sungle joe in full recovery mode. >> who doesn't like uncle joe? i like him warts and all. apparently the ladies love cool joe. >> nothing excited me more than to see that picture of him with the bikers. you've seen that picture. >> yes. i was a little nervous to see that woman was sitting in his lap. she was not actually in his lap. i was fortunate to take my mother to the white house for an event. she was happy to meet one of the members of the four tops as anybody in the administration. when we g

leadership of al-qaeda is gone. they have been targeted and killed by the obama administration. osama bin laden no longer is a threat to the united states and neither is moammar gadhafi. and iran is nowhere closer to getting a nuclear weapon than they were before president obama took office. and america's prestige is up all over the world. the most popular person in europe today is barack obama. so people look differently and more kindly and more as a friend and partner to the united states than they ever did under george bush and dick cheney. i think this president has made a huge contribution in lifting the united states in the eyes of the world, and we are safer today than we ever were under george bush and dick cheney. 866-55-press, what do you say. >> announcer: radio meets telejigs. the "bill press show" now on current tv. of this democracy and see your tweets up on our screen. >>now that's politically direct. >> announcer: heard around the ♪ >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." >> bill: you got it 26 minutes after the hour. before we get to your calls on

president obama took office. unlike the republicans, i wouldn't go out and say, you're the food stamp president. i would say, president obama i understand the food stamp program was growing under the former administration as well, but you didn't stop it. and you added more and more people to those rolls. not because you want them to be on food stamps, but because your economic policies fail. that's why they're on food stamps. you haven't done right by them. you say you're for the middle class. you say you're for the poor. actions speak louder than words. i would repeat that over and over again actions speak louder than words. i'll show you another mom. the poverty rate. in 2009 it was 14.3%. but keep in mind this is during the recovery. you can't blame this on bush. 2010, the poverty rate is higher 15.1%. in 2011, 15%. 46 million people in this country are now suffering poverty. now you say wait a minute, now if the recession isn't necessarily president obama's fault but he has all these people in poverty, how does that work? because it went to the top 1%. but first let me give a sens

at lower cost better quality, i believe in competition. >> obama: first of all every study has shown that medicare has lower administrative costs than private insurance does. and private insurance has to make a profit. nothing wrong with that. that's what they do. so you have hire administrative costs, plus profit on top of that, and if you are going to save any money through what governor romney is proposing, what has to happen is that the money has to come from somewhere, and when you move to a voucher system you are cutting seniors at the mercy of those insurance companies, and over time if traditional medicare had decayed or fallen apart then they are stuck. this is the reason why aarp has said that your plan would weaken medicare substantially, and that's why they were supportive of the approach that he we took. one last point. we do have to lower the cost of health care -- >> we'll talk about that in a minute. >> obama: not just in medicare but overall -- >> romney: that's a big topic. >> yeah i want to get it to but before we leave your comment -- >>

change from what was happening in the last two years of the bush administration. it may not have happened as fast as obama wanted, but this is a base for solid growth, this is not a blip you have had a steady trend that indicates that things are getting much better. if you look at auto sales, you have got to feel better about these things. if we can just get this fiscal cliff nonsense out of the way. if the republicans in the house in particular could be wiped out and we could get some deals together we could eliminate a lot of uncertainty. >> i want to throw in one thing as people are looking at the numbers. one thing that you'll often hear after a good report usually from republicans is more people have stopped looking for work. and i see here 418,000 more people were looking for work in september than in august. so this is not due to people dropping out of the work force. >> jamal: great. and peter can you look at private sector growth and whether or not there was -- they cut public sector -- >> actually i have seen some quick numbers here. the private sect
